Postal Worker Gets Prison For Stealing Kids' Birthday Money 5

East Linda, CA must have a babies with a candy shortage, because postal worker Dean Hudson had to resort to stealing money out of children's birthday cards. Postal officials started an investigation after receiving complaints about opened mail. The investigation led to Hudson pleading guilty to opening mail and taking money out of the birthday cards. US District Judge Edward Garcia sentenced him to five months in federal prison followed by five months of home detention, and Hudson must pay nearly $3,000 in restitution.

  • Seriously, if you're going to steal something from the mail, why would you bother putting back the evidence? If a package to me from eBay wound up on my doorstep empty, and my postman was sporting a JailBreak'd iPod, I would be pissed!

    However, I if I never receive an empty parcel in the first place, then I just take it to eBay :)

      You're questioning the judgment of a guy that thought it would be a great idea to risk jail and his cushy government postal job to steal a few bucks from birthday cards?

      If you're gonna steal you should only go for millions. People who bother stealing hundreds and a few thousand are stupid because they end up in jail and losing their jobs and for what? $100? $1,000? $10,000? How much is yo
  • There's definitely no shortage of babies with candies, where else would I get a snickers bar?
